Crazy: Is it a bad word?

Definition of the word, “crazy.”

Are you offended if someone calls one of your ideas, “crazy?” What if they call your best friend “crazy,” are you upset? If so, why? What is so wrong with being “out of one’s mind; deranged, a crazed lunatic?!”

The term, “You’re crazy” is part of human vernacular.

When people say to me, “You’re crazy,” I say, “Thank you!”

Is crazy a bad word? I say, no, it isn’t. If I am crazy, I love crazy!

If society choses to call or label the mentally ill “crazy” fine. Labels can often be comforting. They call also give you barriers to break through with achievement and accomplishment on the other side!

The word CRAZY has no control over me nor does it define me.

By not using it and reacting strongly against it, we give it MORE power.

I refuse to give it power. I use its power to move me forward to strength and joy.

So call me crazy. Crazy like a fox!
